First family snorkels at Hanauma Bay

HANAUMA BAY, OAHU (HAWAIINEWSNOW) - The first family headed off to Hanauma Bay on Tuesday morning, to enjoy the preserve on a day it's typically closed to the public.

President Barack Obama and his family went snorkeling at the bay with friends, pool reports said.

The president's motorcade arrived at the bay around 11:45 a.m.

This is the first family's 11th day of what's been an active vacation on Oahu.

Since arriving on island Dec. 19, the president has been golfing five times and gone on three hikes, including the Koko Crater Railway Trail.
